Using Job Architecture and Evaluation to Encourage Career Growth


To win at the game of competing for talent, attracting and retaining top-notch professionals are your organization’s best strategies. Yet, while employers understand the importance of building commitment among their workforce, the specific tactics for doing so are often difficult to pin down. This is precisely where transparency – and more specifically, job architecture and evaluation – come into play.

When you use these tactics to foster career growth, you’ll show the people in your company that you understand and have closely considered their positions, and that you value their role in the company. Only then can an employee affect their job, career, and pay – and this presentation will show just you how to get there.
